Stung Treng vendors want market to be restored as it was
Fri, 29 April 2016 ppp
More than 100 vendors in Stung Treng yesterday expressed concern that the location of their stalls would change after the town’s fire-damaged market is rebuilt by provincial authorities.
Prime Minister Hun Sen promised to rebuild the market in the provincial capital, which was damaged by a fire before Khmer New Year, but the vendors are not confident that they will get to keep their old spots.
They also asked why the new market will have 1,320 stalls instead of the 1,220 that the old one had.
Men Kong, a spokesman for Stung Treng Provincial Hall, said the authority met with vendors about the plan yesterday and said that, eventually, “the authority will release 3D planning” for approval.
